Ensconced on over 4 magnificent acres off a quiet cul-de-sac, this classic young Georgian manor is the perfect embodiment of “Gold Coast” luxury and gracious living. Reminiscent of an English nobleman’s country estate, this approximately 7,000 square-foot manse, with 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, is approached by a tree-lined drive and spacious front courtyard. A second drive wends to an equally spacious side courtyard serving the attached 3-car garage. Expansive, level lawns rimmed and dotted with towering trees give a sense of endless splendor and delight. An expansive bluestone terrace across much of the rear of the home includes an outdoor kitchen and bar with seating area. A brick walkway leads to an inviting Roman-style inground Gunite pool with spa, waterfall and brick surround. All combine to provide an ideal venue for summer enjoyment and entertaining.
The home’s interior is equally breathtaking in scope and design boasting exquisite architectural details and superb craftsmanship. Its unique floor plan creates easy flow between sun-drenched and elegant principal rooms, perfect for parties grand or intimate. The epitome of style and grace, the 2-story entrance foyer features a floating bridal staircase, wainscoting and high arched doorways, one with Ionic pillars framing entrance to a sunny gallery leading to the regal sunken living room with high tray ceiling. From here, steps lead up to the warm and welcoming sunroom offering French doors to the terrace and doorways flanking a dual fireplace shared with the den. Offering warmth and comfort, this pleasing retreat also opens to the terrace and offers a wall of custom built-ins with room for a large flat TV. A wide doorway opens into the expansive eat-in-kitchen. Marble floors match the extensive granite-topped cream-colored custom cabinetry that includes a center island with seating area, a huge under mount sink overlooking the terrace and pool, and a chimney-like alcove with mantel over the large professional-grade gas stove with griddle and double oven. Additional high end appliances include an integrated refrigerator and 2 dishwashers plus stainless steel warming oven and espresso maker. The spacious breakfast area opens to the terrace through French doors, perfect for al fresco dining. A lovely powder room, staff bedroom, full bath and laundry room complete this level.
Offering beautiful vistas from every room, the second floor features two gorgeous and spacious master suites, one includes a sitting room with fireplace and both have opulent marble master baths. Each has a whirlpool tub and steam shower, and one has a twin vanity and water-closet. Two additional bedrooms with baths en suite are also on this floor. The full finished basement provides a fabulous place for relaxation and games. It includes a media room, a room with coffered ceiling presently holding a pool table, an area for cards or other table games, and a kitchenette.
This stunning home is in an enclave of equally grand residences in the village of Old Westbury. Long a popular place for titans of Manhattan to build their grand estates, it offers convenience to golf and equestrian facilities and trails, plus superb shopping and dining including the Americana at Manhasset. Beaches and boating are just a short drive away as are universities and museums. Close to major highways and train station, it is within a half-hour commute to New York City.
